Right now we're in the Old Kingdom. This is the earliest period of ancient Egypt. And if you look over there, you can see pyramids being built!
What I'm holding is papyrus. Scribes wrote hieroglyphs on these with reed brushes.
This is Hatshepsut's tomb! She was the first female pharoah! She disguised herself as a man to get more respect but some people didn't like that!
Behind us is a pyramid! It's one of Egypt's great inventions! It takes a long time to build and a lot of work. I'm glad I don't have to do it! And right here is the Nile river! it's very important because it gives us water, and a way to trade. It also has very fertile lands on the side of it which are known as black lands.
The Egyptian gods and goddesses are very important to the Egyptian people. Egypt is a polytheistic country. One goddess is Ma'at. She is the goddess of justice and cosmic order. The gods are said to be related to the pharoahs and thats why pharoahs are so high on the social hierchy
